Posted in News and Updates, Politics on Aug 29, 2012

The medical marijuana industry could save the U.S. billions and generate billions in jobs and taxes.

 

The United States Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce, a 10,000 member-strong national business group with individual state chapters across the country, has officially endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term as President, it was announced today.

“Let’s not get distracted by the myriad of issues that will be brought to the forefront at the upcoming political conventions, the single most important election issue is getting our economy back on track,” remarked Thomas L. Leto III, President and Founder of the U.S. Medical Marijuana Chamber of Commerce.

“The Economic Potential of the Cannabis Business in the U.S. is Limitless and President Obama understands this,” “It is our impression that Mr. Romney just doesn’t get it.”

Leto says the Cannabis Industry has the potential to become a $100 billion annual industry and would create 5 million new jobs within the first year of Federal legalization, which would allow transportation of marijuana across state lines, making easier for businesses to operate.  Currently, the U.S. Government has delegated legalization of Cannabis to the state level where local legislatures have mostly failed to agree on a solution to legally cultivate the business for growth.
